Cheesy Crescent Rolls - YUM!!!

My life is a little chaotic at the moment.  Alright, who am I kidding?  It's EXTREMELY chaotic right now.  We are in the process of moving to a smaller house after living in our current home for 14 years.  I cannot believe how much "stuff" we've accumulated.  Now, it's the time for sorting and packing up the things we're keeping (and will fit in our smaller home) and donating the things that we no longer need.  This is not always an easy process, especially for my husband who is a PACK RAT!  I admit that I save sentimental things but he has stuff from his college days like shirts he wore two sizes and twenty years ago.  We have shared a lot of laughter and the occasional tears, sometimes both at the same time as we get ready to start a new chapter in our lives.  Anyway, in the midst of all this chaos and boxes, we still need to eat.  So the next few weeks I will be posting about quick and super easy RECIPES that don't require a lot of fuss and preparation but you and your family will still enjoy.

These crescent rolls are amazing and oh so easy (my favorite kind of recipe)!  The best part is that these rolls are very versatile.  They're great for breakfast with just the cheese, you can also add a thin slice of turkey or ham along with the cheese and it's a great lunch to take on the run.  Another way to serve them is to cut the triangles in half and you've got a great appetizer. If you're feeling a little decadent, you can put a little piece of chocolate (hershey's kiss or a small spoonful of Nutella) in the middle and roll up.  It's like sin on a plate.  So many ways to enjoy them!

Cheesy Crescent Rolls
1 package of refrigerated crescent rolls
Approximately 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

Unroll crescent roll and separate into individual triangles. Place on baking sheet. Put 1 tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese on each crescent roll and roll up.  Bake according to directions on can.  It's that easy.

*Variations - You can add a thin single slice of turkey or ham (like the deli sliced lunch meat) that has been cut to fit the crescent roll (about 1 inch X 2 1/4 inches).  I do not suggest putting more than one slice of meat along with the cheese.  The rolls tend to come out gooey and don't cook evenly.  I have made them with the one slice of meat and cheese and they're great.  My daughter loves to take them for lunches or even a quick breakfast to go.
